"A Scandal for Thought": Le neutre

  • Julia Hölzl


How to think beyond the either-or without thinking a third? How to think beyond (the) beyond? How to think neither the one, nor the other, but to think (from) somewhere else? How, then, to think an outside, how to think outside, how to think with/in an elsewhere?

This text focuses on le neutre sensu (not only) Maurice Blanchot:

Trans/gender, trans/categorical, un/translatable, un/locatable, un/veiled, un/seeable, always as elsewhere, otherwhere, somewhere else, always im/possible, un/connected, a/s No(t) and Yes, not No(t), no(t) Yes and yet not Nothing, neither here nor there, either and.
